“Go Here for the Mountain Bike Shredding!”

Reviewed May 30, 2018

Overall Rating

I'll start with the roads. I drive a 30ft trailer so this is from that perspective. If you're in a car or small camper, skip to the next paragraph. Once you turn off the 101, the road is super narrow and the turnouts are wrought with giant dips. Take your time. There is one extremely steep section with really tight switch backs, b... more

“Great location and great bike trail system”

Reviewed Sep 29, 2017

Overall Rating

Tent camped here in June of 2017, about 4 miles of dirt road to get to the camp ground but it looks like there is room for a small trailer too. Rather empty remote spot but epic mountain bike trail and that is why most would go here. Shelter Cove is fun town too so check that out.

“Great dry camping for mountain bikers”

Reviewed Feb 25, 2017

Overall Rating

This is a great campground if you intend to do any mountain biking at the King Range National Conservation Area. First, the road is rough to get here, but if you're coming from Shelter Cove Road from the south (driving north), it's the first campground you'll hit. If you go past the campground, the road gets progressively worse. Betwee... more

“Great basecamp for the Lost Coast mountain bike trails. Bike Park in the camp!”

Reviewed May 17, 2016

Overall Rating

We camped here because of the Paradise Royale Mountain Bike trails and bike park. It is an amazing little spot deep in The Lost Coast. The downside is that it's really hard to get there with a trailer/camper. The hwy in to Shelter Cove is steep (15-18%) and curvy. Then you have 4 miles of dirt that are also steep and narrow. The drive ... more
